You want to update the thin client's firmware locally (without IGEL Universal Management Suite or HTTP/FTP server).


You can use a USB storage device to update the firmware locally. This method is particularly suitable if only one device or only a few thin clients are to be updated and it would not be worth installing an FTP or HTTP server purely for the update.

Procedure for Windows 10 IoT

  1. Download the update file (.zip) for your device from the IGEL download server.
  2. Save the unpacked update file (.snp) on an NTFS-formatted USB storage device.
  3. Configure the firmware update in the local setup under System > Update > Snapshots > Download:
    1. Select File the Protocol selection box.
    2. Enter the File name of the snapshot file (.snp) you want to download and install.
    3. [optional] Enable Reset IGEL configuration settings in order to reset all configuration parameters to the factory default settings.
    4. [optional] Enable Reset User partition in order to delete all files on the user partition E:
    5. Apply the changes so that they are effective for the thin client.
  4. Connect the USB storage device to the thin client and wait until the device has been detected.
  5. Launch the update process via Download Snapshot.
    Download and installation of the update will begin.

    Do not interrupt the update process when it is in progress. This can result in system inconsistencies. Do not remove the USB device until the update has finished.
